What is your Palm Springs?
You know you have a place too. One that your mind wanders to when work sucks, kids suck, or you simply spent yet another day with toothpaste on your shirt right before you spilled your coffee on it. It's a place where you only wear a bikini because it makes the clean-up easier, and in turn, makes your life easier which means you MUST ACTUALLY BE ON VACATION BECAUSE YOUR DAYS WOULD NEVER BE SO EASY UNLESS YOU WERE.
Because that's how vacations work, friends. One of my places is #PalmSprings. It's easy, it's sexy, and it's a little scandalous. Just like me.
